Great Sponge Activity or Bellringer

If you're familiar with the game Boggle, you'll enjoy using these pencil and paper versions with your students. Boggle is a word search game without an established list of words; students simply list...

Love These!

Definitely a throw back to the day when teachers freely shared.

Here is a poster set I developed for figurative language, aimed at the middle and high school grades.

Enjoy and feel free to...

Wish I could!

I go to every single one I can in my area. You should check to see if they have a hashtag for Twitter, and then connect with folks there.

Thanks, vttraveler!

All of these are great suggestions! I will investigate further. The fort is already on our radar, but the island sounds way cool.

Lake George Attractions

I'm the head of a teen travel program and we're hoping to visit Lake George in Summer 2018. Anyone know the area and want to recommend any "hidden treasures" that we might otherwise miss? Any venues...

Lots of Great Suggestions!

I taught grade three for 9 years, grade four for 11 years, and grade 6 ELA for the past 8 years, and this is a common problem.

I think you’ll find this article...

Scholastic Book Wizard

allows you to search like you described (somewhat). Personally I'm using Amazon more and more to find titles related by genre, theme, etc. Definitely works better than any library search feature.

Did your students read the book?

I'm going slightly off topic here by not answering the question posed in your thread, but most Holocaust education advocates dislike both this book and the movie for giving children the wrong idea...

Specifics and Exemplars!

My understanding is that many teacher eval systems have built-in teaching modules that administrators are supposed to assign for those teachers who need help in any area.

You should ask about...

Take the Karma, Not the Cash

If I were you, I would donate them all to lower-income schools, teachers in training, summer camps, day cares, etc.

You will be disappointed and disheartened if you sell them. You will get pennies...

I Teach Grade 6 ELA

and I feel it's important to have them begin doing it properly at this grade level, and they can then "fine tune" the process before they get to high school.

My students use CiteFast to create a...

Is It Still Your Problem?

Once a parent chooses to go over your head to the principal, consider the problem no longer yours. If the principal comes back to you with it, of course, then it's time to own it. But often the...

How About Book Clubs?

I would survey teachers to see those areas with which they would like further development, and then purchase professional books that would get discussions going.

I'm an advocate!

But ironically I taught for twenty years before converting!

It definitely has won over some very reluctant readers in my class.

Here are some thoughts as well as some research on the topic:...

What subject area is this friend teaching? Many subjects have their own Nings which allow teachers to communicate with kindred souls.

A really compelling book is

The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt, or his follow-up called Okay for Now, which can be read totally on its own merits. Many of my students also love Crash by Jerry Spinelli. Also, The Fourteenth...
